Poll: What pleasure would you give up for Lent?

Each year, many Christian denominations (most famously Catholicism) obverse Lent, a period of fasting that starts on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Easter Sunday. Lent is a season where the penitent focus on prayer, sacrifice and good works. In modern times, many parishioners obverse sacrifice by giving up what they consider their greatest vice.

In 2015, Lent started on February 18. IF you were of a religion that observed Lent, which of these pleasures would you give up for 40 days?

Or, to put it another way, if you had to give up your greatest vice for 40 days to honor what you consider a greater cause, which would it be?
